After countless detailed spoilers and various official leaks of “teaching”, a new generation of Porsche 911GT3 has finally come to us. Like the previous model, the new car still uses a 4.0-liter horizontally opposed 6-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with a maximum horsepower of 502 horsepower and a standard 7-speed PDK gearbox (optional 6-speed manual). The new car can be equipped with a new suspension. Finished the Nurburgring North Circuit in 7 minutes, the specific time is 6 minutes 59 seconds 927.
The new 911 GT3 has been significantly upgraded in appearance, mainly focusing on enhancing aerodynamics and cooling performance. In addition to the more aggressive front and rear bumpers and openings on the front cover, the most eye-catching part of the new car comes from the “swan neck” rear wing on the 911 RSR racing car. It can be adjusted manually and used in conjunction with a prominent diffuser, which can also be adjusted to the “performance” position to increase downforce. Porsche claims that this mode is “only used when going out on the track.” An optional accessory dedicated to the GT3 is the roof made of exposed carbon fiber.
Of course, the new car also has many customization options provided by the Porsche exclusive series, including carbon fiber mirror top, blackened headlights, redesigned taillights, and guard red or shark blue paint on the edges of the rim. In order to reduce weight, the front and rear hood, rear wing and spoiler are all carbon fiber reinforced plastics, and the whole car glass is also used in a lighter and thinner version.
The new 911 GT3 uses 20-inch wheels on the front and 21-inch wheels on the rear. They are about 1.6 kg lighter than the previous GT3 wheels, and can be optionally equipped with a set of semi-hot-melt tires that can be used on open roads. The new car uses this set of tires to get the fastest lap time of New North. The front wheel of the new car comes standard with a cast iron brake disc with a diameter of 408 mm, which is 28 mm larger than the previous model. At the same time, you can also choose Porsche ceramic composite brakes, the front brake disc diameter is 410 mm. In addition, another important upgrade of the new car is the double wishbone suspension used on the front wheels instead of the MacPherson suspension on the standard Carrera series models.
The interior of the 911 GT3 has also undergone some upgrades. The “driving mode” button is moved out of the 4 o’clock position on the steering wheel. Different from the barrier design of other 992-generation Porsches, PDK shifts using a modified manual gear lever, which seems to be more comfortable. Four-way adjustable sports seat Plus is the standard configuration, but buyers can choose 18-way sports seat Plus or carbon fiber full bucket seats, which can reduce the weight of about 11.79 kg.
The core of the new GT3 is a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine that can produce 502 horsepower and 469 Nm of torque, with a maximum speed of 9,000 rpm. It is worth mentioning that the new car has 6 independent throttles and the same reinforced forged pistons as on the 911 Speedster. The new car comes standard with a 7-speed PDK transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission is optional.
According to official data, the new GT3 with PDK gearbox can accelerate to 96 km/h in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 317 km/h. The latest 911 GT3 can finish the Nurburgring North Circuit (20,832 meters version) in 6 minutes 59.927 seconds. In contrast, the previous generation GT3 took 7 minutes and 12.7 seconds to complete, and the previous generation GT3 RS took 6 minutes and 56.4 seconds.（Read more about auto: crv）
